Rhode Island Sub-lease Agreement
The Rhode Island sublease agreement allows a tenant that is under a rental contract to allow someone else to occupy some or all of the space for a specified amount of time in return for rent. The original tenant, or sublessor, is fully responsible for the subtenant and must adhere to all State laws just as a landlord should with a lessee (See Chapter 34-18 Residential Landlord and Tenant Act). Therefore a rental application should be required for all potential sub-tenants.
The common sublessor range from a college student going on holiday to someone who does not want to fulfill to the end of their term in a binding lease. No matter what the reason may be the original tenant must always obtain permission from the landlord.
